Indeed, the ex-Stoke man put forward his theory on social media after the north London side left the Britannia Stadium with nothing but a red card and three goals conceded to their name.
That, in his opinion, was what prompted the Argentine to play four centre-backs along the back four, only for Mark Hughes' Stoke side to 'pass them off the park.'
The ex-Potters winger says he saw the same tactic every time Tottenham played Stoke when they were managed by Tony Pulis - and was particularly puzzled by Pochettino refusing to utilise Danny Rose or DeAndre Yedlin.
Puzzled me, that's what they used to do when I played under TP. https://t.co/ZL2uMERCo2— Matthew Etherington (@mattyethers) May 9, 2015
Stoke are now only eight points behind Tottenham in the Premier League table, although they cannot catch them in the standings as both teams have just two games remaining of their campaign.
